15 Minutes From Marie
(P.Mark)
From the album IndigoVertigo

Well it’s half-past the workday
Quarter to a hot summer night
Driving south to stretch my payday
Taking what’s left and making it right
I’m 10 miles from New Orleans
And 15 minutes from Marie

My radiator’s percolating
Piston rhythm’s firing away
I got that jittering in my system
Like a groom on his wedding day
I’m 10 miles from New Orleans
And 15 minutes from Marie

I’m 10 miles from New Orleans
Speeding to my Creole date
9-8-7 hours since I tapped the brakes
6-5-4 across the state in record time
3-2-1 the checkered flag’s the city line
Louisiana hayride just ain’t fast enough for me
I’m 10 miles from New Orleans
And 15 minutes from Marie

I burned it up through Natchez
But I shut her down through Baton Rouge
Up there the cops will smile and treat you
To a bunk in the calaboose
I’m 10 miles from New Orleans
And 15 minutes from Marie
